What an awesome place to eat. This restaurant just opened about a year ago, and has already won the title of my favourite restaurant in town :) Everything inside is decorated to look like its from the 50's. The food is reletively modern (they serve all kinds of sandwhiches, soups, wraps, burgers, and breakfast ALL day) but I think the food goes at 50's prices because its very cheap. You won't need any more than $8 CAN per person for a full breakfast, and that includes peameal bacon, hash browns, pancakes, and a drink. There's even a HUGE gigantic Sundae you can buy, and it costs $15 CAN but its for 6 people to share. Not bad. I'd highly recommend coming here to eat.

This is a GREAT place to eat. It's right across the street from my high school so me and my friends used to always walk over during our lunch hour. I was also employed here as a waitress for one summer, and made many interesting discoveries: one that the fries are HOME made, from freshly but potatoes. Anpther that it is a family business owned and managed by a husband and wife. Their names are Claire and Merv - nice people! they will be retiring in September 2005, so after that a different man will be running the restaurant.
The menu consists moslty of seafood, but there is also a variety of sandwiches, soupes, burgers, etc. Breakfast is available all day as well. It's nicely furnished inside, and decorated as if to look like its on a ship.
From the experience of working here, I know that the philosophy of this restaurant is to give first class customer service to everyone who comes in. The waitresses are always warm, friendly, smiling and make you their first priority.
I'd eat here again in a heartbeat. If you're just passing through Alliston and wanting to stop by for lunch, I think you'd really enjoy this place.
Favorite Dish: I loved the cezar salad (I always ordered it wishout bacon bits and they took some of the price off.) But the best thing there is the cheese bits - I can't really describe them, but they are SO good! My friends and I used to just order a big plate of them and share them all. They're considered an appetizer, I think, but that used to be all I ate along with the salad.

Millpond Café is attached to a small bookstore called A Loft of Books. Here you will have the choice of eating indoors, or on an outdoor patio. Their menu includes a wide selection of hot and cold gourmet sandwiches, soups, salades and European coffees.
Millpond Café is closed Sunday, but open Monday to Saturday from 9am - 5:30pm
They also lay out several magazines, and novels for you to look at. You can sit upstairs and enjoy some paintings that are on loan from the Millpond Gallery as well.
The staff is always polite and courteous every time I go in there.

I had heard of the restaurant from cousins who live in the area, but just recently had the opportunity to try it out. Next door to a chain restaurant (East Side Marios), at the far west end (appropriately) of a strip of stores.
We arrived at the end of the lunch hour peak, so had good service, a choice of tables, and found ourselves not rushed.
Favorite Dish: I had a tuna melt - lots of cheddar, over the tuna salad, and on the other slice of texas toast. Nice to have it as a sandwich, and not just on a slice of french bread. The fries were a little overcooked, but good. There is also a choice of soup, or salad (for a bit extra). My friend had the clubhouse sandwich which she said was good, except she would have preferred "real" turkey or chicken meat rather than the pressed slices.
However the desserts were wonderful. We split a caramel/mocha cheesecake and a Baileys Irish Cream cheesecake - and they were both excellent. I think that the caramel won the day, though.

The food at the Nottawasauga Inn is excellent. Great lunch time buffets - you'll see business men & women enjoying it, and tables of people coming from not only Alliston, but even down from Barrie, and from other communities, to enjoy the lunchtime buffets. I believe Saturday night and Sunday nights they have buffets as well as the marvellous Sunday brunch spread.
It is nice to look out over the golf course, and the pond and gazebo.
(You'll see this same paragraph in my hotel review... sorry, I'm not original)
Favorite Dish: The Buffet has a good variety, whether it is the brunch (breakfast-lunch) on Sunday, the weekday lunchtime buffet, or the weekend dinner Buffet.
They offer a good salad bar, and great roasts.
